'Good Trouble' star Sherry Cola says 'juicier' moments to come in season 2: 'You're gonna see more skin'
Fans of the Freeform show 'Good Trouble' have a reason to rejoice; especially if you're the kind that gets thrilled about their favorite characters on the show getting down and dirty with their desires, and of course - the drama.
Promising lots of juicy, sexy, revealing stuff on the way, actor Sherry Cola - who plays the role of the recently out, first generation Asian American lesbian, Alice Kwan - spoke about the enriching journey of the character, and 'The Fosters' spin-off story in general, in an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW).
"We're like halfway - maybe a third of the way there, and season 2 premieres on June 18," shared Cola as MEAWW caught up with 'Good Trouble' star at the red carpet premiere of Netflix's 'The Last Summer'. "It gets juicier, believe it or not, you're gonna see more skin," teased Cola, adding that they are also "gonna talk about things - the good stuff. Can't give much of it away."
Speaking about how her character's personal plot arc looks in the upcoming season, Cola said "Let's just say Alice sort of has an evolution. You see kind of a growth and we are proud of her at the end of season 1. She's definitely still trying to discover who she is and what she's comfortable with. A bunch of dilemmas there!"
'Good Trouble' kicked off in 2018 as the spin-off of the highly popular teen-drama 'The Fosters' and stars the original's leads, Maia Mitchell and Ciara Ramirez. From social issues to personal issues, 'Good Trouble' showcases a wide array of all-inclusive characters meandering through young adulthood as they face crises and realize who they are.
In short, it's been quite the wholesome journey especially when it comes to an ever-loyal fanbase, that Cola credits the five-year-long run of 'The Fosters' to.
"We're so lucky to already have that 'The Fosters' fanbase and that was over five years of loyalty. They love what the show stood for," she shared with us. "As much as the show still has the heart and the social issues It's just kind of a new, a young 20s version of 'The Fosters' and I think people are really responding well to that especially because we're showing these specific stories. Especially with Alice as a first generation Asian American lesbian. It's real people in L.A. At the end of the day, it's people who are in the 20s and it's messy, and these are people who are relatable and that's why people are responding well to it."
When asked about what was her personal favorite reaction moment from the fans, Cola said: "Of course, the coming out episode meant a lot to a lot of people. When I grew up, I didn't have that. To see such a specific storyline of an Asian American, first generation, lesbian, navigating with her parents and stuff like that, kind of like finding who you are - I think it's so important and it has really spoken to a lot of people."
'Good Trouble' returns with its second season on Tuesday, June 18 at 8/7c, only on Freeform.
